    javascript to put the focus on the flash object

    Hi, could someone give me some hints on how to make some javascript that will make it so the user doesn't have to click on the flash object to select it?

    ...I'm doing some keyboard input incase you're wondering why the hell I'd want this.

    In the object tag of the movie (in where it has the width and height parameters) add the parameter

    id="movieName"

    then in in the embed tag add

    name="movieName" swLiveConnect=true

    now you can focus your movie from the an onLoad event handler in the body tag like this

    <body onLoad="window.document.movieName.focus();">

    hope this helps
